Home to Home Program: Keeping Pets Out of the Shelter
Seattle Humane is working hard to keep families together through its community outreach programs, but sometimes pet guardians have to make the very difficult decision to find new homes for their furry friends. Rather than go through the stressful process of surrendering them to our shelter, pet guardians now have the option of using Seattle Humane’s Home to Home program. This direct-to-adopter tool lets people communicate with prospective adopters, and find the right new home for their pets. The Home to Home program has had an amazing response since it launched almost a month ago, with 14 lucky pets finding new homes. Many incoming surrenders to Seattle Humane have been canceled recently, because Home to Home gave pet guardians the right tools to handle rehoming on their own. If you’re needing to rehome a pet or looking to grow your family, please visit sh.home-home.org.
Adoption by Appointment: Under Seattle Humane’s new adoptions-by-appointment system, prospective adopters will first be asked to identify the pet they’re interested in taking home and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. A Seattle Humane team member will contact applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be an over-the-phone advising process to ensure they are a good match for the dog, cat, or critter they wish to adopt. Seattle Humane does not have a set timeline for when an adopter might be invited to campus for an in-person meeting with an adoption candidate, but people will have the option of placing a hold on a shelter animal in the meantime. More details about the new system are available at https://www.seattlehumane.org/adoption.

Updates from MEOW www.meowcatrescue.org
Become a MEOW Guardian Angel: A "Guardian Angel" is a person who cares deeply for an adult cat or cats, but isn't in the position to adopt them. This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.
Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. If you know someone who could use their help, please have them call the shelter (425-822-6369) or email MEOW at email@example.com
